“When I heard zippy logistic may have a press for best improved player 2019-2020 I, I thought it was just a rumor. Personally, it’s great to see all the hard work, effort and resources I have dedicated to polo start to bear fruit. I want to say a big thank you to Polo Club, the President, Captain, Committee and all the members for their contributions to my improvements as a polo player and ultimately, my winning this award”.
The award was presented by, Kabir Shagaya who is the former Managing Director, Zippy Logistics now Technical assistant on investments to the Governor of Kwara State.
Kabir also commented saying;
“We just felt we needed to do our part, Zippy logistics has always been a part of the polo community and since our #Ispotzippycampaign was running it just fit in quite nicely. Plus in some way this is our way of giving back to a player whose hard work needed recognition and gratitude, just like every Nigerian.”
